Cindy's Fun House


Hello there!  Is this week flying by or what?  Today, I'm sharing some pics from my friend and good customer, Cindy's house.  I visited her early this year, to plan some projects with her, and I snapped some pics to show you a few things I've done for her, and mostly, to show you what a kick a$$ color scheme she has in her house!  And I apologize in advance for my terrible photography skills (plus it was a very gray day in the wintertime)....but anyway.....


She has a fabulous "beachy" vibe going on, inspired by her love for the Bahamas....shades of greens, aquas, pinks and a pop of yellow here and there.....it's such a happy space.  Isn't that clock amazing?  It's not staying there...we're going to hang it with some surprise art around it.  Cindy got that clock in the Bahamas....made of driftwood...so cool.  And it's HUGE.  It will make a great statement piece for that wall!  And those couches....sigh.



And these gorgeous chairs are nestled in a sweet nook in the dining room.  I polka dotted the legs on the chairs before the upholsterer worked his magic with that fabric!!!


This greets you in the entryway.....more chair legs for me to work on....and that sweet round table was really fun to do.....I love harlequin prints!


And look at those dining room chairs!!!  I didn't paint these....someone else had the....um...pleasure....but aren't they just stunning? 


I painted some knobs for her laundry room.....cute, no?



I painted knobs for her craft room too, but I forgot to photograph those.  And the biggest project of all....she asked me to paint the bar stools for her kitchen!  This was a lot of work, (7 chairs total, I believe) but the end result was worth it!  Cindy tells me that even the men who visit her home love everything going on in here!






What a splendid space to drink your morning cup of joe! 

And below is an old chandelier that I prettied up for her downstairs bathroom.  I fell in love with it, and told her I wanted to steal it....and sweet gal that she is, she found one at a sale for me...and it's the one now hanging in my dining room.  BIG SMILES.  I'm a dork about it too.....not a week passes by that I don't look at my painted chandelier, think of her, and smile.


And finally, her WONDERFUL sun porch off of the kitchen!  I want to move into this room, overlooking the pond.  It's amazing!  My contributions to this room are the painted tea cart and the coffee table.  Thank you, thank you Cindy for sharing this beautiful space, and for keeping me so busy!  I'm looking forward to sharing a few more art pieces with you guys that I'm working on for Cindy...my poor customers...they have to wait so long for me to finish things. 

Cheers!  Hope it's sunshiney where you are today!

I'm SO JEALOUS! You do amazing work, Dori! A house full of Dori-things is my dream. Not sure I can get Phil on board... maybe just a room or 2! :-) See you soon! ps - you may have to work some magic on Natalie's cast when we come in for her birthday. Pretty it up a little for her pirate birthday party!

Wow! That house is amazing as well as all the painted and upholstered furniture. My favorite by far are the bar stools. Love them!
